Elizabeth Keenan was just one of the former nurses who attended the ceremony and she reflected on her time in the Corps during the 1970s.
"It does bring a lot of us back together again," Ms Keenan explained.
"There are colleagues here that I haven't seen for a couple of years, yet there was one I saw only last November.
"It is important, you've got to have that esprit de corpsregularly within any regular service but certainly within the QAs."
The Army's Chief nursing officer also attended, laying a wreath of remembrance.
Speaking to Forces News, Colonel Alison McCourt said: "My message to them [the Corps] is to take pride in their ancestry.
"We're here at a sunset ceremony to sort of rededicate ourselves to the Corps and look forward to the challenges of the future.
"One of the things we've talked about is change, we talk a lot about challenges, we've heard today the challenges that Voluntary Aid Detachment nurses, the nurses of Crimea and nurses of World War One faced.
"They rose to that challenge, just like every generation of QARANC nurses have since and will in the future."
